Meet the Thalia Ensemble: six young, dynamic musicians from all corners of the world, who met at the Conservatory of Amsterdam. Devoted to studying authentic instruments and historical performance practice, they have worked with specialists such as Stanley Hoogland, Alfredo Bernardini, Benny Aghassi, Teunis van der Zwart, Eric Hoeprich, Jill Feldman, Ernst Schlader and Wilbert Hazelzet.
The core of the Thalia Ensemble consists of fortepiano, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, natural horn and traverso, but can vary from duo to octet settings to embrace the full repertory of chamber music for wind instruments from the era between 1750 and 1850.
Since the beginning of 2011, the musicians of the Thalia Ensemble have been presenting themselves as experts in the field of classical and early romantic chamber music in various Dutch and German concert series, such as the Utrecht Fringe Festival 2011 & 2012, the ‘Leitheimer Schloss-Konzerte 2012’ and the ‘Erbdrostenhofkonzerte 2012’ in Münster. Beyond that, during the season 2011/2012, the Thalia Ensemble has organised its own concert series consisting of three different programs and 9 concerts in total. Performances took place in Hoorn, Amsterdam, Hilversum and Breda. In August 2012, the Thalia Ensemble was selected to perform during the International Young Artist’s Presentation in Antwerp.In July 2013, the Thalia Ensemble was awarded the first prize during the York Early Music Young International Artists Competition. Their first CD will be recorded in summer 2014.
